Thai Immigration have filled in the details of an armed night raid earlier this week at a Chonburi hotel.

The men arrested have been named as 43 year old Joseph Mulhare and his 38 year old brother Gregory Mulhare.

Their arrest followed a cat and mouse game as the pair moved from Pattaya to Bangkok before they were eventually taken in at gunpoint in the early hours of Tuesday morning, this week.

The Thai Immigration website says that the brothers were wanted by the North West Regional Crime Unit in the UK who made representations to the British Embassy in Bangkok.

They are wanted on charges related to dealing in cocaine, amphetamines, ecstasy, MDMA and cannabis.

The Liverpool Echo in the UK reported that the brothers were originally from the Wirral and had travelled to Thailand earlier this month.

Thai immigration discovered they were staying in South Pattaya at The Link Hotel. They were often seen frequenting the Unique Blue Sports Bar.

They learned that they were being pursued by the Thai police and subsequently went to Room 305 at The Loft in Pratumnak Hill owned by Wirawan Luangleu.

On November 18 the pair paid Wirawan 2,000 baht to take them to Khao San Road Bangkok.

From here they went to Suvarnabhumi Airport attempting to give officers the slip. They changed taxis at the airport and proceeded to Sukhumvit Suites in Asoke in Bangkok.

At 10pm on November 19 they checked out and went by taxi to Panda Resort in Don Hua Lor district of Chonburi where they were arrested at 2.30 am the next morning.

Their visas have been revoked and they are being prepared for deportation back to the UK.

The Hangover – Pattaya | The Thaiger

A British man has made an official complaint to police in Pattaya that 1,000 pounds sterling in cash and a diamond ornament worth 100,000 baht were stolen from his room yesterday.

The 56 year old British man, whose name has been withheld, told police he met two young Thai women not far from his home in Chon Buri’s Banglamung district at about 2.30am (Saturday morning).

They returned to his room and had consensual sex.

One of the women then left, but the other said she lived far away and was too drunk to make the effort, so it was agreed she could stay (you know what’s coming, right?).

The man said he awoke on Saturday evening to find his room ransacked and valuables missing, including 3,000 Thai baht.

He found two tablets in a plastic bag and learned from a pharmacist they were sleeping pills. He believed the women had used the drug to knock him out.

Police have found clear images of both women recorded on CCTV and were testing the pills left behind.

Thai navy special forces have reported the tragic loss of one of its cadets during a ‘freak’ training accident on Thursday.

While in training to join an elite Navy unit, 22 year old Navy trainee Kriangsak Pengpanich was struck in the neck by a needlefish moving at high speed. The carnivorous shallow water fish are not considered to be aggressive towards humans and few fatal incidents in the past have involved young people.

The accident happened off the coast of Trat province during a 60 hour training exercise.

The funeral is being held at the Sattahip district of Chonburi province until Tuesday.

Online posts by Marine ecologist Thon Thamrongnawasawat say this is the first time he has heard of a fatal attack by a needlefish in Thailand.

Just drums and brass, that’s all they need.

Hailing from Hamburg, Germany this modern take on the marching band concept is comprised of eleven musicians and, boy, are they good! With their iconic red jackets this group dares to rearrange house and techno music to bring it to the street. Started in 2015 by trumpet player Thomas Burhorn, this group has been taking over the web as more and more footage of their performances have spread throughout the internet. 

It’s the brass that does it, providing a big, enveloping sound its hard for their spectators to stand still. As they themselves dance to their music with their faces a weird mix of passion, joy and puffed up cheeks. We are excited to see more from this group as they keep growing.

Keep an eye out for them at Wonderfruit’s solar stage this weekend in Pattaya.

In the meantime watch this…
